My Scene



As soon as I saw it I had this crazy idea to either cosplay it on the next toy con or buy one and dress it up as a Jac Strip doll ROFL ;D

Hello! I'm trying out to see if I could showcase my pussycam victims in this blog ;)

Psychocow's

The Wild Goose Chase

I.

The clock read 10:00am. Fighting off a mixture of lethargy and the weight of four plates of Pansit in his belly, the Cow struggled to get up. He sat on the side of his bed, trying to slap the sleep away.

10 o’clock. Nothing to worry about for the meantime, just a couple of meetings in the afternoon. He had time to spare, time to waste. Nothing spectacular happening today, nothing worth thinking about, nothing at all.

Nothing... And yet, a small voice in the back of his head was trying to say something. It was yelling, but he couldn’t hear it. If he could only shake the sleep off...

And then it hit him: 10 o’clock! He remembered! The Naughty Girl would be lurking at Glorietta at precisely that time! Although the Cow and the Naughty Girl didn’t specifically set a date, the Cow felt guilty for waking up late.

There was no time to lose. As quick as his hooves could carry him, the Cow shaved, clipped his nails, took a bath, did his two-step facial (involving Papaya soap), did his hair, and donned his best. Can’t be caught looking less-than-sharp in front of the Naughty Girl. The Cow paused in front of the mirror and admired himself. Despite his growing desperation, he could not help but think how awfully handsome he looked that moment. He rushed out of the house.

II.

The clock read 11:26am. After riding a tricycle, a jeep, and a bus, he finally arrived at Glorietta. As fast as cows can go, he rushed to the fountain area. The Naughty Girl hinted that she would be lurking there. Past the haggard commuters, past the screaming kids, past the high school kids cutting classes that day, he ran. And ran. And ran.

And finally, the fountain area. His heart beating with anticipation, the Cow scanned the thin crowd, looking for signs of the Naughty Girl. Any sign, any sign at all. But alas, no signs. No hordes of prepubescent boys screeching loudly, no trail of weak-kneed men, no cluster of wailing women, no crushed spirits... No Naughty Girl.

Disappointed, the Cow swore with frustration. Was he too late? Did the Naughty Girl leave? Was she ever there? There was only one thing to do, at this bleak point of defeat and despair. He texts her.

And she replies. Yes, the Cow did indeed miss the Naughty Girl. But, as a few text messages told a compelling tale, she was still around the area. If the Cow was willing to wait, she will be at the BPI Main Office at around 1:30pm.

What could a Cow do? Of course he would wait.

III.

The clock read 1:03pm. The Cow feasted on Penne and Pizza, and now he was killing time until 1:30pm.

The Cow was now in a bind; He would want nothing more than to meet the legendary Naughty Girl, but he had a meeting a 2pm. The meetings, inconsequential and unimportant earlier in the day, now loomed as a leaden weight to the Cow’s spirits. Still, thirty minutes was still a lot of time to spend with the Naughty Girl.

1:20pm. The Cow got up from his table and walked over to the walkway. From there, he could see BPI. From there, he might run into the Naughty Girl.

1:30pm. A text message. The Naughty Girl was nearby. The Cow decided to trot over to BPI and wait for her there. Another text message. The Naughty Girl was inside! She is so close!

But where was she? The Cow couldn’t find her!

Another text message. The Naughty Girl asked the Cow to call her. He does so, and finds out that she is no longer at BPI, but is a block away! How could that be? The Cow panicked! He makes a run for it to try and catch her.

Just then, another phone call. The person the Cow was meeting with was in the area, and was already waiting to pick him up! What despair! At that moment, the Cow spots the Naughty Girl... on the other side on the street! Quickly, he tells his ride to pick him up precisely where the Naughty Girl was standing, puts down the phone, and rushes to the underpass to get to the other side of the road.

The very moment the Cow sets his hooves on the right side, the Naughty Girl’s sister flags down a cab! Oh, woe is him! The Cow has indeed run out of time! Throwing decorum, breeding, and care to the wind, the Cow calls out the Naughty Girl...

...The Naughty Girl turns and sees him...

...The Cow catches up with her...

Realizing that they literally had seconds left, the Cow and the Naughty Girl trade a few words. Then, the Naughty Girl boards the cab, and the cab drives off, leaving the Cow sweaty, panting, tired, but elated.

IV.

Later on, when the Cow is left to his musings, he will remember not the desperation, not the running around, not the impending loss of time. The Cow will, for sure, remember the 15 seconds, and the adventure that lead to it.

The End

Which Tarot Card Are YOU?

The Chariot Card
You are the Chariot card. The Chariot has the
energy to succeed. Their ambition and drive
leads them into competition, and they often
come out the victor. The fast-paced energy of
the chariot is met with the ability to control
and lead. The Charioteer's leadership is not
authoritarian but rather an attempt to bring
their team to victory. The Charioteer can be
obedient to those who have proven themselves in
a position of leadership. Physical prowess and
activity are important to the meaning of this
card. Travel is found here as a journey of
personal growth. Moving from one point to
another in attempt to find a better place may
be taken both literally and as a metaphor for
the inner self. Image from: Dorothy Simpson

MY HAPPY ENDING by Avril Lavigne

so much for my happy ending

Let's talk this over
It's not like we're dead
Was it something I did?
Was it something you said?

Don't leave me hangin'
In a city so dead
Held up so high
On such a breakable thread

You were all the things I thought I knew
And I thought we could be

You were everything, everything
that I wanted
We were meant to be, supposed to be
But we lost it
All of our memories so close to me
Just fade away
All this time you were pretending
So much for my happy ending

You've got your dumb friends
I know what they say
They tell you I'm difficult
But so are they
But they don't know me
Do they even know you?
All the things you hide from me
All the shit that you do

You were all the things I thought I knew
And I thought we could be

It's nice to know that you were there
Thanks for acting like you care
And making me feel like I was the only one
It's nice to know we had it all
Thanks for watching as I fall
And letting me know we were done

He was everything, everything
that I wanted
We were meant to be, supposed to be
But we lost it
All of the memories so close to me
Just fade away
All this time you were pretending
So much for my happy ending

"I don't want to do this anymore"
"Why?"
"It's all a lie"
"What is?"
"We're not in love anymore. It's pointless to go on"
"Why didn't you say anything then?"
"Because I thought I could keep having you that way"
"Then why now?"
"Because I realized I never had you in the first place."

I love you, Angel. And I always will.
You are my best friend. And I will be here as long as you need me.
I do not hate you. I forgave you a long time ago.
But I am not in love with you anymore.
I'm letting you go.

This is where the Angel Chapter ENDS.

DEMENTOR UPDATES:

I have just munched on Black Forest ice cream cake to eliminate the last traces of any Dementor attacks from me :9

As for Ragnarok, we have finally agreed on Crisha's new pose. i think. I lost the documentation of that one. Nah, I'll just text him...

And the tarpaulin? I sent an email of our project agreement. And I won't work on it until he complies. So now I'm free to work for other clients who doesn't give me Dementor attacks.

As for the soundbooth, I got paid P3375(tax deducted), so I guess it's ok. Anyway, my business is done regarding that. They want me back I'll cut another deal.

And I feel better now. I get a bit off when I get caught under the rain again but I recover now as quickly as usual.

And I have bought a dreamcatcher in Greenbelt, same place Wanwan bought hers and also accompanied by my other sis Vivi. It's big and it's red. The screams and words I heard before are now reduced to sighs and whispers. So I guess that's an improvement.

Which reminds me, I had a dream this morning. I dreamt my family(Mamy, Vivi, Allan, me and Wanwan) went to Canossa (my high school) to hear mass. Nope, not in the chapel, but in the classrooms. They arranged the armchairs to be like pews. And the teachers do the service from behind their desks. Weird huh? I wonder if this has anything to do with my last post (Purpose Driven Jac 6)?

Then I looked out the window and found an amazing sight of the full moon AND the sun, together in the same sky! I was so excited I hurried Wan to take pics with her mobile phone.

As she took pics we notice a huge swarm of bats(and I mean HUGE. It nearly swallowed up half the sky) flying across from the left of the sky. Covering first the sun, then the moon. Wanwan was worried about the bats. I told her we're ok with them up in the sky and us down on the ground.

Then the bats came swooping down and caused panic among the congregation. Everyone's running all over the place. We held together and ran away. Then I woke up. I wasn't so disturbed when I dreamt it, even when later on that I read around that it may be a bad omen. Maybe because I know no matter what happens, our family stays together. Like we always had through the most troubling times. And we will still be through the best times in the present and the future.
PURPOSE DRIVEN JAC 6

Chapter Six: How should the fact that life on earth is just a temporary assignment change the way I am living right now?

This chapter disturbed me so much I almost decided to discontinue with the book. No wonder some of the ones who read it wanted to quit their jobs and volunteer as a missionary in Africa and shit! This chapter said we're actually ambassadors in an enemy country and that we shouldn't be tempted by life's different philosophies and betray God. It said that we should be like the martyrs who suffered all through life because they'll get their rewards in the afterlife.

Correct me if I'm wrong. But I don't believe we all should be martyrs. I don't believe enjoying life is a sin. We are not here JUST to serve God by being martyrs or by suffering. We are here because he created this world we're living in for us and it is our job to take care of it. This is NOT enemy country. It IS our home. He made this home for us. I'll be danged if I allow this earthly life to be called 'theirs'. This may not be heaven, but this sure ain't hell! This is life. This is where angels get masteral degrees and this is where devils can get a completion grade!

Life is transient yes, I agree with that. Life is part of a learning stage, yes! I agree with that! But we don't suffer in life because we're hoping to be rewarded in death.

We live this life and do what is right for the betterment of this place. Our ultimate goal is not merely to serve God like a servant would to its master. We help God bring heaven on earth. This may sound impossible. It may even be that it will never happen. But I'll live this life the best I can, being as happy as I can, and even make others happy, if I can. Because that's what heaven is. A place where we can share God's joy in His creations.

And if we aim to live doing what's right, for the benefit of all, then I believe we'll get there. I believe we can live in heaven without having to die after suffering and sacrificing to do good.

What I have just said may be controversial, but this is what I believe. If you believe otherwise, come and try to change my mind :) it might be fun.

PERFECT by Alanis Morissette

Sometimes is never quite enough
If you're flawless, then you'll win my love
Don't forget to win first place
Don't forget to keep that smile on your face

Be a good boy
Try a little harder
You've got to measure up
And make me prouder

How long before you screw it up
How many times do I have to tell you to hurry up
With everything I do for you
The least you can do is keep quiet

Be a good girl
You've gotta try a little harder
That simply wasn't good enough
To make us proud

I'll live through you
I'll make you what I never was
If you're the best, then maybe so am I
Compared to him compared to her
I'm doing this for your own damn good
You'll make up for what I blew
What's the problem...why are you crying

Be a good boy
Push a little farther now
That wasn't fast enough
To make us happy
We'll love you just the way you are
If you're perfect
PURPOSE DRIVEN JAC 5

Chapter Five: What has happened to me recently that I now realize was a test from God? What are the greatest matters God has entrusted to me?

What my mind is preoccupied with most right now is how I seem to have 3 career paths. One is something my family chose. Another is something I wished for short term. While another, unexpected path came up with possibilities so awesome I still find it hard to believe.

I know I should be ecstatic. But I can't help feeling apprehensive. I have always been wary of God when He does these things. It's like He teases me sometimes. He'd show me something I thought I could have, then change His mind and make me deal with something I didn't want at all.

So as usual, I just wait for more details instead of jumping to conclusions and making long-term plans for things that are not sure after all. I leave God my future. His will be done.

PURPOSE DRIVEN JAC 4

Chapter Four: Since I was made to last forever, what is the one thing I should stop doing and the one thing I should start doing today?

I should stop ranting about how miserable I am and start taking steps to improve myself and be productive.

Now excuse me, I have deadlines to chase :)

Thursday, June 24, 2004

PURPOSE DRIVEN JAC 3

Chapter Three: What would my family and friends say is the driving force of my life? What do I want it to be?

Ummmm money? Nyahahahha! I set short term goals like earning enough money to buy a digicam. I plan to buy one this September :) It usually depends on what I am capable of at the moment. Like someday I want to earn enough money to open a separate time deposit account. And I draw to be a better artist. And I help people because they need it and they asked me to.

What do I want it to be? I just want to be happy, I guess. Achieve contentment. I don't really want to be as rich as Bill Gates, just able to afford to get all that I want.
DERRICK'S SHANGHAI PICS

PURPOSE DRIVEN JAC

Strangely enough, I received a free copy of the book The Purpose Driven Life right after my recent harrowing experiences. Our friend in church who was once a deaconess is giving away free copies of the book. I told my friend and former roommate Cathy about it because she's the first person I saw with a copy of this book. She said I might not like it. Perhaps it's because I determined to go through this book taking each and every page with a grain of salt. The rock salt kind. The book suggested to be read with a 40-day journal.

I wondered if I can keep the journal online by this blog. So here we go...


Chapter One: In spite of all the advertising around me, how can I remind myself that life is really about living for God, not myself?

I'd say mainly by holding on to the understanding that our relationship with God is like a child to its parent. i got this insight from my former Architecture classmate John John Ong, and i'll always be grateful for that because only then did everything make sense. Why we're created. Why He let all those things happen. It's because He wante to create something to love, and maybe be loved back. He will always hope for the best for each and every one of us like any parent would for their child. And the child, however successful and happy one seems to be, the joy is only multiplied when shared with the ones they love and loves them. And God is the One who we can always be sure who loves us. So it's much easier to find joy when we share our successes with the ones we love and love us. God is One of them. We can even thank Him for those successes ;)


Heheh, I hope I didn't overdo for a first timer ;D

My apologies to everyone because I know they all can't wait to hear all about my winning free tickets to Linkin Park's METEORA Concert Tour, but I've been fighting off real-life Dementors since last week.


"That's it! RUN! Run for your worthless so-called life, ya filthy dementor!"

EXPECTO PATRONUM!!!
by Jacky Cho Chang, Head Seeker of the PHP Ravenclaw Quidditch Team


Dementor 1- After rushing to finish the Ragnarok Loading Wallpaper since Friday(along with other Dementor projects with the same deadlines), I was asked to redraw it. So Dementor 1 had a field day filling my already stressed-out mind with thoughts like "I'm a hack! He's not satisfied with my work!" and "He probably won't pay you anymore!" But my Expecto Patronum (positive thought) for this is that my friend who commissioned this actually requested the redraw real sweet and kindly :) and we agreed that he'll pay when I put in the approved work.

Dementor 2- I ran through the stormy rain without any rain gear rushing to finish the 8 feet x 12 feet Sampaloc Lake Project Tarpaulin in 3 days only to be expected to accept only PhP 200(US $ 4). According to my calculations I could charge as high as PhP 7,000, but since he's a friend I gave him the price of PhP 1,000. He said he'll bring it up to the committee. Then later he said they're not satisfied with my work and will not use the design and therefore missed the deadline(BIG ouch!). My Expecto Patronum for this one is to apologize and revise the tarp to fit what they think is right and charge them P800, making this the most underpriced project I've had in my entire career. I still need lots of chocolates for this one though(mmmmm, Musketeers choco nougat bar!). I already fainted TWICE.

Dementor 3- I also ran through stormy rain for this one for a whole month gathering materials for research (yes, I'm officially sick with cough and colds and I think I'm still running a fever) for the Soundbooth Project. (My thanks to all the cool people who helped me with this project :) I thought I am to be paid at least PhP 5,000 for designing and making the technical drawings as well as the calculations. I took extra pains in the calculations to make the materials as low priced as possible(I could have just cheated and made overpriced estimates, but I really researched for the lowest prices for the most efficiant materials by going to the different shops on foot, under and through the storm). It's why Dementor 3 was practically celebrating when I'm told that the soundbooth won't be built for now and that my fee should be only 10% to 15% of the price of the materials which means they think I only have to be paid no more than PhP 2,700. Yes, Dementor 3 was laughing so hard its sides were hurting. I gave an Expecto Patronum of agreeing to PhP 3,750. But I've yet to receive a reply from the client.

So right now I'm sick in bed and cannot sleep because everytime I do, the Dementors move in again so I'm getting these nightmares. The kind that lets you open your eyes but cannot move, breathe nor call out while you hear strange voices, whispers and screams all around you. Mom tried to sleep beside me but soon had to leave San Pablo for my younger sister in Manila who had another cult attack just before my nightmares. I get these nightmares whenever she gets these attacks, so my family believes we have this psychic link. Skeptic that I am I just believe my stress put my guard down. She was riding a bus home when a strange lady approached and forced her to sign a contract. Like they always tried to when they held her prisoner in their temple in Malaysia and in her nightmares when she got back in the Philippines. And I still have more projects to do like the Comic Strips for this family magazine abroad(I guess it's like Smart Parenting, sigh, too bad Summit still doesn't contact me to make comics for their mags ;) and I need to do 4 animation concepts for this Makati company today. I'm hoping this Friday's meeting in Alabang would be fun though :)

Wow. Writing about all this DID make me feel better. Somewhat. I was reluctant to write about this but I felt like my soul's being eaten from the inside out the longer I carry this by myself. I never wanted to admit the negative side of my life, even to myself. So I thank you guys for listening anyway :)

Dear Danny,

I have always enjoyed working for this company. You have been the coolest boss I ever worked with.

Last tuesday. By then I am aware of the newly made rules. It would take some getting used to, and I'm still disappointed at how I can't wear mini skirts to the office anymore ;)

And it is only that day that I ever told anyone in the office that I may not be able to work in Makati for long. I told Marvin that I may have to work in China.

I am applying to work in China because my father who works there feels homesick with no family to be with. I told father that if I get accepted to work in China I need 1 month grace period for you. I was planning to make arrangements so that I can still work for you, the difference is that it would be from China, where I can still get online to work with you guys.

As of now I am still not sure if the company in China will hire me.

As of Tuesday afternoon you told me by chat:

"so the client for SR told me that he can't renew your contract for the next month..."

"we'll probably need your consulting help too..."

"we'll just figure out when there's a project that needs your special talents"

"... the main concern for us is that..."

"you can upload all of the work that you've completed so far..."

I am perfectly fine with it :) In two weeks I can reestablish my freelance clients, tell them I have more free time to work on their projects now, and make adjustments regarding my lodging in Makati, for I may have to move back to Laguna until my services is needed for your company again.

after I had my lunch Pam told me to talk with her downstairs. She said it's about you telling her that I'm leaving the company and that he wants her to do the necessary arrangements. Like talking to me. And answering my questions. Like how much longer do I have to adjust to the new situation?

According to her I may as well leave "now". I could only hope that this is a case of miscommunication. That the WHOLE thing is a case of miscommunication. But from where things are going it's like I just burn my files and leave.

Are they saying I have only until tomorrow???

I asked her if I may have at 2 weeks to do the adjustments: I have to reestablish my freelance contacts. I have to move back Laguna, after uprooting myself to move into Makati to share rent with a friend of mine. I still have to explain to my room mate that we may not be able to keep the room we're renting because I have to leave. Where would she live? It's impossible for her to find a place to move out to by TOMORROW!

They want me to submit a letter of resignation. According to the labor code AND the employment contract for probationary employees I am entitled to a grace period 1 month after the submission of the letter.

They can't even give me 2 weeks. They said it's because I'm on probation. I leave as soon as I get my pay for this month. That's TOMORROW.

I still don't understand what is happening, really. And I hope someone would clear this all for me. I'm hoping you would explain this all to me. I can't understand why. I have served this company with the best of my intentions. If I am actually being dismissed I ask only for 2 weeks.

It would be an understatement to say that the whole thing happened abruptly.

I have to admit that I am hurt by this whole affair. If the incident that happened between you and Erwin is any explanation for your actions towards me, then I hope you would think more carefully regarding your actions involving this company.

I am hurt, but I resolve to remain understanding. I would still welcome any coordinations with this company. I only hope matters are carried out more clearly. Thank you.

what just happened?

I have always enjoyed working for this company. Danny has been the coolest boss I ever had.

Last tuesday. By then I am aware of the newly made rules. It would take some getting used to, and I'm still disappointed at how I can't wear mini skirts to the office anymore ;)

And it is only that day that I ever told anyone in the office that I may not be able to work in Makati for long. I told Marvin that I may have to work in China.

I am applying to work in China because my father who works there feels homesick with no family to be with. I told father that if I get accepted to work in China I need 1 month grace period for danny. I was planning to make arrangements so that I can still work for Danny, but from China, where I can still get online to work with you guys.

I am still not sure if the company in China will hire me.

As of Tuesday afternoon Danny told me by chat:

"so the client for SR told me that he can't renew your contract for the next month..."

"we'll probably need your consulting help too..."

"we'll just figure out when there's a project that needs your special talents"

"... the main concern for us is that..."

"you can upload all of the work that you've completed so far..."

after I had my lunch Pam told me to talk with her downstairs. She said it's about Danny telling her that I'm leaving the company and that he wants her to do the necessary arrangements. Like talking to me. And answering my questions. Like how much longer do I have to adjust to the new situation?

According to her I may as well leave "now". I could only hope that this is a case of miscommunication. That the WHOLE thing is a case of miscommunication. But from where things are going it's like I just burn my files and leave.

Are they saying I have only until this Friday???

I asked her if I may have at 2 weeks to do the adjustments: I have to reestablish my freelance contacts. I have to move back Laguna, after uprooting myself to move into Makati to share rent with a friend of mine. I still have to explain to my room mate that we may not be able to keep the room we're renting because I have to leave. Where would she live? It's impossible for her to find a place to move out to by TOMORROW!

They want me to submit a letter of resignation. According to the labor code AND the employment contract for probationary employees I am entitled to a grace period 1 month after the submission of the letter.

They can't even give me 2 weeks. They said it's because I'm on probation. I leave as soon as Friday. That's TOMORROW.

I still don't understand what is happening, really. And I hope someone would clear this all for me. I'm hoping Mr. Danny Sullivan would explain this all to me. I can't understand why. I have served this company with the best of my intentions. If I am actually being dismissed I ask only for 2 weeks.

It would be an understatement to say that the whole thing happened abruptly.

I hope for all your sakes that this would never happen to any of you. I have to admit that I am hurt by this whole affair. If the incident that happened between Erwin and Danny is any explanation for his actions towards me, then I hope he would think more carefully regarding his actions involving his company.

I am hurt, but I resolve to remain understanding. I would still welcome any coordinations with this company. I only hope matters are carried out more clearly. Thank you.

God Is A DJ by Pink

I've been the girl with her skirt pulled high
Been the outcast never running with mascara eyes
Now I see the world as a candy store
With a cigarette smile, saying things you can't ignore
Like Mommy I love you
Daddy I hate you
Brother I need you
Lover, hey "f*** you"
I can see everything here with my third eye
Like the blue in the sky

If God is a DJ
Life is a dance floor
Love is the rhythm
You are the music
If God is a DJ
Life is a dance floor
You get what you're given
It's all how you use it

I've been the girl- middle finger in the air
Unaffected by rumors, the truth: I don't care
So open your mouth and stick out your tongue
You might as well let go, you can't take back what you've done
So find a new lifestyle
A new reason to smile
Look for Nirvana
Under the strobe lights
Sequins and sex dreams
You whisper to me
There's no reason to cry

You take what you get and you get what you give
I say don't run from yourself, man, that's no way to live
I've got a record in my bag you should give it a spin
Lift your hands in the air so that life can begin

Jac, Jonas....

Tania from New Worlds got in touch with me because they wanted to feature comics artists this friday on their BREAKFAST show. I want to go sana but I can't go because I have a Feb 2 deadline on Superman and konti pa lang tapos ko. I need all the time I can get. I told them that and they said that is there any other Komikero that can go? I take that to mean other members of our group. I recommended you both kasi you're both there in Manila anyway and well, you're two of our best artists na rin. I think that's live so that would take place in the morning. But you need to ask
them that I guess. Kasi you guys have a 1pm din sa Alabang diba? So it's going to be a pretty busy day. :) Kung di kayo
pwede, let them and me know para makarecommend ako ng iba.

I'm one of the best artists? awwww shucks (blushes)
